Change password using jsp and servlet

In servlet page, i am getting the input value type by the user from the jsp
String oldpass = request.getParameter("oldpass");
String newpass = request.getParameter("newpass");
String confirmpass = request.getParameter("confirmpass");

Now the problem come, i want to use the if statement to tell if the newpass(which is the user key in for new password) is not the same as the confirmpass(which the user key in for the confirm password) then there will be error ...

below is my coding, how am i going to add into this if statement???

 if (oldpass.equals("") || newpass.equals("") || confirmpass.equals("") ){
            // login failed
      request.setAttribute("error", "yes");      
RequestDispatcher rd = request.getRequestDispatcher("/password.jsp");
      rd.forward(request, response);
            }

The condition you have to check is

newpass.equals(confirmpass)

may be like this

if (oldpass.equals("") || newpass.equals("") || confirmpass.equals("") || newpass.equals(confirmpass) ) {
